Magdalen College Grove

Moore, John and Durham, Brian Magdalen College Grove. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




A four day field survey of an area of car parking and parkland at Magdalen College Grove showed a body of medieval deposits concentrating towards the south of the area where the parkland adjoins the rear of medieval properties on the corner of High street and Longwall Street The findings are consistent with the usage of this area as a rear access to the later site of the medieval hospital of St John the Baptist which lies under the older parts of the college, and may indicate a traditional connection. No structural evidence was found of the first phase of the hospital which has been suggested to lie on this site, but there was residual pottery of the period and it is possible that a cluster of buildings the size of the hospital of St Bartholomew in Cowley could lie under the squash court.
